Basic principles of Mössbauer spectroscopy and applications

  • George Filoti


The Mössbauer spectroscopy [1, 2, 3], know also as a recoilless nuclear gamma rays resonance, represents a very powerful tool by providing a large range of information via the modification of the nuclear level energy, derived from the interactions with external factors specific to condensed matter, mostly due to the electron contributions.
